Ecisions of his 38 years as a manager and with his friend and collaborator Sir Michael Moritz draw out lessons anyone can use in business and life to generate long term transformational success From hiring practices to firing This is a superb profoundly interesting account of the man who has reigned at the top of a sprawling footballing conglomerate for 26 years There is something for everyone to take away from this book even if you are not a football fan It spans the entire spectrum covering Sir Alex Ferguson s childhood in Govan a town in Glasgow Scotland his playing career and his managerial stints in three Scottish clubs before he landed at the club where uarter of a century later he will have a bronze statue and a stand bearing his name in the famous red of Manchester United This is a tale of a very successful man who made winning a habit and inculcated that habit into this organization Most importantly he maintained the habit till he left the club so much so that Manchester United is synonymous with Sir Alex FergusonSir Alex writes thoughtfully and candidly The best part that I liked about this book is that Sir Alex didn t hold back anything he named names and is surprisingly open Some very interesting aspects of his tenure are discussed in vivid detail and often it felt like reading the man s mind His iron grip on the dressing room coupled with relentless hunger of being and staying the best remain unmatched in footballing world Football is littered with examples of how great wildly successful managers lose the dressing room Jose Mourinho in Chelsea and Manchester United Carlo Ancelloti in Bayern Munich Antonio Conte in Chelsea are very recent examples of magnificent managers losing the dressing room and succumbing to player power And this is where the title of the book is apt it s called Leading not Managing Very few football managers become leaders Perhaps Diego Simone in Atletico Madrid can be called a leader but he has not spent a decade at the helm of his club yet The fact that Sir Alex was the supreme authority among his players coaching staff and others in the football club for than two decades is a testament of how he practiced control and discipline Being able to retain that control with so many players coming from all corners of the world and translating that control into success by playing well on the pitch is unmatched in footballing history Although I am not a Manchester United supporter that doesn t stop me from appreciating how charismatic and brilliant Sir Alex was in his tenure at the club Nobody knows whether football will have such a leader again However I do feel that a little bit of humility along with anecdote and explanation of why things went wrong when they did would have made this a human read But again it maybe wrong to expect that in a book written by such a competitive person

After an astonishing career first in Scotland and then over 27 years with Manchester United Football Club Sir Alex Ferguson delivers Leading in which the greatest soccer coach of all time will analyze the pivotal leadership d The book is a second go at Sir Alex s biography this time focusing solely on his leadership skills A very enjoyable read indeed But then again I found the following to be a bit annoying at times1 99% of the book is dedicated at how Sir Alex has done everything right Even sometimes criticizing his own critics and trying to defend his decisions Perhaps a bit of modesty or sharing anecdotes regarding the things that went wrong would have helped the tone of the book to shift sometimes2 The co author knows not much about leadership For instance he writes in the last chapter of the book which is unnecessarily lengthy that introverts don t make good leaders I have read many books on leadership and can tell you that it is an absolute bull Every contemporary MBA knows that the notion is wrongI enjoyed the book as I am a Manchester United fan The mono tone of the book made it a bit tedious towards the end but I learnt a few points from it
